David Suchet, famed as TV's Hercule Poirot, has starred with the RSC, on London's West End and on Broadway, winning four Olivier nominations and a Tony(R) nomination. He has starred in numerous films and is director of the Old Vic Theatre, and a member of the Trust Council of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Reviews

A peach of a case for Poirot. I take my hat off to the author for as ingenious an alibi as can well be imagined.

-- "Sunday Times (London)"

The main alibi is of the first brilliance...the descriptive work hits, as it were, the Nile on the head.

-- "Observer (London)"

In Death on the Nile, Poirot, on vacation in Africa, meets the rich, beautiful Linnet Doyle and her new husband, Simon. As usual, all is not as it seems between the newlyweds, and when Linnet is found murdered, Poirot must sort through a boatload of suspects to find the killer before he (or she) strikes again.

-- "Amazon.com"

One of her best. Poirot, again on vacation, falls foul of a murder on board a Nile river steamer, followed by two successive murders, obviously connected. A sophisticated group, an ingenious plot, clever deduction, swift-paced narrative. A little romance on the side lends glamor. First rate entertainment.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

It seems like an insolvable crime, until the famous detective Hercule Poirot starts to investigate. Death on the Nile deserves its reputation as one of Christie's best travel mysteries...Eighty-odd years after her first book was published, Christie and her mysteries are more popular than ever. Recommended for all collections.
